    I order them as needed but Bullet Central is the retailer. EVERY Nuevo action comes through Bullet Central. It does not matter if the smith orders or you order, the price is the same, unless your smith is marking them up. Best bet is to call BC and get on the list if you want one.

    That's probably more to do with your good stock work for tracking and balancing the rifle than it is the action ;)

    I feel there is merit in both components as I have both the Nuavo and a LRB Stock and I can back & support through my own equipment of what Alex is finding with vertical climbing of a given ladder to almost resist walking the page when your in the "meat of a good tune" coming in or when relly pushed it will still walk page but there has been more built in forgiveness if you will has been my finding. I have a additional platform with a different brand action that shows a similar characteristic & both platforms share the same type stock so I attribute some of what we are finding as stock type being favorable.

    I am also curious to see how the new Bixn' Andy action performs whenever it finally gets released...I like the idea if integral vibration dampening. I think it could possibly increase forgiveness in tunes as long as the dampening effects can remain consistent shot to shot. Not sure what sort of dampening tech they will be using in the receiver? Of course it would be hard to get a whole lot more forgiveness than what the target shows with the Nuevo action.

    I do try to compare components on the most equal playing field I can. Its my opinion the biggest step forward we will see in our sport will be in actions. Many feel the action plays a small role in accuracy, I could not disagree more.

    Thanks for the info. First I’ve heard of it. It’s been a few years since it was announced... any idea when they’ll actually be available?

    I have no idea. Would have to contact Bullet Central about a potential release date. They've had it listed as "Coming Soon" for a long time. I'm not sure some folks in the firearms industry actually understand the proper definition of the word "soon". Lol

    So it’s the Nuevo M on the Bullet Central site?
    Do you know if they do a right bolt, left port, right Micro eject?

    Yes the Nuevo M. M=medium. I call it the Nuevo long range, the serial numbers start with LR, and I do not want to confuse it with the normal Bat M.
    Yes, they do a r,l,r micro

    Anyone have the hands-on, actual weight for a R/R and/or multi-port?
    Thanks,

    2lb 14oz for a dual port. Easily make F-open weight as well as 17lb BR

    Just saw this, is Brakleen okay for a Jewell or lighter fluid only?

    Id stick to lighter fluid, it has a slight oil residue after it dries.

    And as a follow up to this action. Serial number one was used to break the 6 and 10 match IBS 1k group agg records in its first year. So they are off to a good start.

    Lighter fluid doesn't leave a residue, or if it does it's not a lubricant.

    I ran an experiment: I cleaned an inch-square portion a plate of glass lying on my bench squeaky clean using Gun Scrubber and paper towel. Then I poured a small puddle of lighter fluid on that spot and let it evaporate for a few hours. With a desk lamp reflecting off the glass, I could not see any residue or film remaining. Then I took a fresh strip of Scotch Magic Tape and stuck it firmly where the lighter fluid had evaporated, rubbing it down and letting it "seat" for a minute. I then grasped one end of the tape strip and peeled it off. It took the same force to peel from the glass as when I subsequently ran the same tape test on glass cleaned only with Gun Scrubber. If there was the faintest "film" of lubricant on that glass, the tape simply would not stick nearly as well if at all. Looking at it another way: Any film of lubricant slight enough not to affect the tape would also be too slight to provide any lubricating effect on a trigger.
